Published Apr 04, 2013We already knew that Jay-Z would be heavily involved with the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, sitting on as executive producer. Now, the tracklisting confirms that Hova did his job well, calling in favours from a wide cast of stars.
The release includes brand new songs from Jay-Z, the XX, Florence and the Machine, and Lana Del Rey, the latter of whom worked very closely with Baz Luhrmann on her track.
There are also plenty of covers, including Beyoncé and André 3000 teaming up to cover Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," Bryan Ferry covering Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love," and Jack White taking on U2's "Love Is Blindness."
